Northern Arizona University Information

Northern Arizona University Flagstaff, AZ, abbreviated as NAU, is a public university in the state of Arizona, United States.

The main campus is located in Flagstaff with extended campuses spread throughout the state. The extended campuses serve as alternative learning environments where students are given the chance to learn outside the boundaries of traditional education. Classes include accelerated classes, weekend classes and night classes.

Northern Arizona University was founded in 1899 as Northern Arizona Normal School. It held its first graduation in 1901, with a graduating class that included four women who were given credentials to teach in Arizonian Territory. The school was renamed to Northern Arizona State Teacher’s College in 1925 when it was allowed to grant a Bachelor of Education degree by the Arizona State Legislature. Four years later, 1929, the school was again renamed, this time to Arizona State Teacher’s College of Flagstaff. Although Flagstaff was greatly affected by the Great Depression, enrollment in the school continued to rise. In 1945, with the school already granting degrees other than in education as well as master’s degrees, it was renamed to Arizona State College of Flagstaff. The present name was bestowed upon in 1966 by the Arizona Board of Regents. The school’s first doctoral degrees were offered in 1968.
